discover the varietal


Gewürztraminer is a type of grape that is well-suited to the climate of British Columbia, Canada. Plantings of this variety have been steadily increasing in the province, and between 2006 and 2014, they rose by 61%. Gewürztraminer grapes are known for producing wines with intense aromatics and fruitiness, and the unique climate of BC is ideal for bringing out these characteristics. The grapes can sometimes lose acidity as they ripen, resulting in wines that are a bit flabby, but the cool nights in BC help to maintain the natural acidity of the grapes, preventing this issue. Wines made from Gewürztraminer grapes typically have aromas of lychee, rose petal, and ripe stone fruit, and they may also have a touch of sweetness.
